'select' the white areas?!

You mean remove them to make the picture transparent?

well what im doing is i have a map..with white borders spacing each country

i want to make them a greenish colour, so it looks better

i want a program that scans for all white 255,255,255 on the picture and output it to the screen so i can take a screen shot and paste it into an image editor and turn them green,
i also got to put the borders onto a proper graphical map, as the one that i have now is made up of colours, i got another one with proper grass textures etc that doesnt have the borders on it

You want to take a screenshot and edit the map right? So what do you need VB for? Just press the PrintScrn button, and a shot of the screen is copied to the clipboard.

Of course you could just change the values in the picturebox. Scan each pixel in the image, check to see if its white, and change it if it is.
Look at GetPixel and SetPixel.

i need vb as the paint shot pro that i am using doesnt have any features to change all the white colour to a green

i tried the getpixel method..i somehow stuffed it and got really ****ed off

What did you try for the API method?

Something like this?
Place API declarations here

Public Sub ChangeColor(picBox As PictureBox)
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
picBox.ScaleMode = vbPixels
picBox.AutoRedraw = True

For i = 0 To picBox.ScaleHeight
For j = 0 To picBox.ScaleWidth
col = GetPixel (picBox.hDC, i, j)
col = col Xor 255
SetPixel picBox.hDC, i, j
Next j
Next i
End Sub

ah dont worry i found out why i didnt work

i didnt have the screen that i was copying off visible......

i have asked a question in the other post..recently next to this one...

about get pixel can u have a look at that

You shouldn't need to have the picture visible. GetPixel works on memory DCs hich are never 'visible' on the screen.

Yeh i read your other question, didn't really understand though, I haven't been following that thread.
